Description

The eastern Mediterranean Levant and Cyprus comprise highly varied landscapes, vegetation, climate, precipitation, and unique geographic features in small areas. Limited seasonal precipitation, a minimum of permanent water resources, and frequent drought years have contributed to a fragile ecosystem. Diversity of topography and vegetation, from the lowlands to mountains and deserts, nevertheless have made this seemingly challenging region hospitable for human occupation.
